TESTIMONIALS

Neil Buchanan

Neil BuchananEVP, Marketing/WireIE

I had the privilege of working with Tim while he was CTO at WireIE – and one of the original founders of the company.

Tim’s detailed knowledge of complex products and his ability to simplify, enabled my marketing team to accelerate our in market positioning and presence.

With a passion and expertise in the creative process, directing and producing – seems only fitting for Tim’s successful enterprise.

Kathryn Kennedy

Kathryn KennedyChannel Program Manager/NeoTerra Systems

Tim was brought into neoTerra to develop technical and product oriented documentation in support of the company’s mobile geolocation solutions.

Not only was his technical writing clean and well structured, Tim also showed a lot of clarity and imagination in writing product collateral and other marketing materials.

While at neoTerra, Tim designed, configured and managed the company’s feature-rich content management system. This platform gave our Developers and Support team immediate access to our ever-growing online technical library. Important to me as Channel Account Manager, the platform also provided an elegant and functional client-facing experience for our prospects and clients to learn more about our solutions.

In summary, I would characterize Tim as “steak” rather than “sizzle”. He provided real, valuable, solid knowledge and skills to the neoTerra team while maintaining a modest, thoughtful and approachable presence in our office.
